Mémoires


Today let's take a stroll down Memory Lane or as the French might say, Mémoire Chemin ( or Chemin de Mémoire?)*.  This is the view of the beautiful Église Saint Paul-Saint Louis on rue Saint Antoine in the Marais.  When I stayed in the neighborhood last June, I enjoyed this view many times as I wandered up and down the streets of the charming Marais area. I never tired of it.  In fact,  a similar photograph in sepia is one of three photographs framed over my bed.

* Google Translator and I along with my dictionary made this translation. I'm open to corrections here!

That's a beaut...also reminds me of the shot you took in Jan of Notre-Dame de Lorette.
Daryl, we'll have to meet you there sometime FOR SURE!

And save for a few little bits of color, this one almost naturally looks like sepia. Beautiful! I may have said this before, but you're a fortunate woman, V.

Nice perspective and palette to this one, V.
